Time to give a thumbs up or down for the current Congressional NY-23 ads.
Anyone who has ever marketed a product (which a candidate is) should understand you have to sell that product and it is most effectively by not disparaging another product. Disparaging another product is only a sign of weakness, some of these political ad people need to find another job.
Hoffman ad: thumbs down
National Republican Congressional Campaign Committee ad: thumbs down
Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee ad: thumbs down & full of distortion
Bill Owens ad: thumbs up
Owens wins the opening week 1 of the NY-23 ad war.
